Simply Blessed Babe in her recent blog post Single Christian girls, let's start believing! decided to encourage her readers ( which includes me of course! ) to pray for each other with audacious faith for ( in her words )....
"Let's agree before it happens, that we'll all receive an extraordinary breakthrough of getting closer to our future husbands....and not just any husband -- that one is someone who just loves God and is sure to be imperfect but more than enough to be our match. Let's agree that while we're waiting, we'll continue to be amazing and thriving, just at peace to continue to do what we're doing so well now."
Now before you start thinking things like 'Well, being married or in a relationship isn't the be all and end all and surely there are other things we could be joining together in prayer about' - I say before you start thinking this - is....
Yes, there are a lot of other things we could join together in prayer about and if there is something else you would like prayer for, please email me and I'll do it. I'm not going to stop praying about other needs and for other people. Most of us have become regular readers of each other's blogs and formed a virtual single community as such because we are single and would like not to be. I know that I have friends praying for me to meet the right someone but I would like to also be linked in prayer with other believers who are desiring the same as I am and coming from that same heart. :)
So every time I come to update my blog, read or reply to a comment or even just because I feel like it I'm going to come to this page and pray the prayer below for the amazing list of women's names below the prayer. I'm going to update as I get request so if you would like to be added to my list add a comment or email me. Please also visit Blessed Babe's blog and add yourself to her list. There's a button that you can add to your site to link us as well. I'm inspired and excited - I know I'm going to be reading some amazing testimonies soon!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you that I can come to you and that when we call out to you, you listen to the cries of our hearts. I ask you to forgive me for my sins, the things I do that keep my eyes off you and on my own selfish ways but I thank you so much that by the sacrifice by Your Son Jesus that I am justified and you remember my sins no more. I come to you in faith for the fulfillment of the desires of the hearts of each of these amazing women and my own, that each of us have to be married and be married to a husband that is committed to You as we are. I thank you for the reports of praise that will be coming and written on here and the testimonies of how Your hand was evident in everything from the introduction to the wedding day itself. I thank you for the desire that you have placed in us and thank you for the opportunities of growth and time with You that you have planned for us in the meantime. Lord I am so grateful for the community of amazing women that is forming and while at the moment we are finding fellowship in our common state of being single, the real commonality is that we are seeking You for our hearts desire to be married and it's by Your love and sacrifice we are bonded. I pray these things in Your name. Amen.

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. ( Jeremiah 29:12-13)
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.(1 John 1:7-9)
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more ( Hebrews 8:12 )
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. ( Hebrews 11:6 )
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.( Psalm 37:3-6)
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. ( Matthew 18:20 )
